It looks like the beef between Kevin Hart and Mike Epps has resurfaced!

The two comedians have engaged in a war of words over the last few years, and last year fans thought the two squashed their issues. But now that they both have projects to promote — (Epps has the upcoming feature “Dolemite” and Hart currently stars n “Night School”) — the two seemed to have entered back into this petty territory where they’re firing shots at each other.

Last month, Hart alluded that Epps is jealous of his career… see the post below

 

Nick Cannon decided he wanted some attention from the drama as well, so he decided to get involved by throwing his support behind Kevin. As expected… that didn’t go over too well with Mike… see the post below.

 

 

In a recent interview on The Breakfast Club, Epps was asked what the issue between the two of them, he explained:

This is the thing about that whole situation. This is a lifetime achievement for all of us. And I think that some of us, when we get success we turn into the police. When you have a platform, where you can speak on things –  everybody loves a winner. That’s the thing about when you’re winning, you don’t know who is really on your side, they just riding for you. And if you have a platform over everybody else, it’s easy for you to make things the way you want them to look.

When asked if Epps felt its important for Hart to acknowledge his contributions to the game, Epps explained…

I don’t think he owes me none of that. Nobody owes [anyone] respect. I just think, if you’re in a position of power, you can’t be a gatekeeper; you can’t be the police; you can’t like a victim. Every time, and people can have an opinion about you. Just because you’re the CEO of something or if you have more than the next person, that doesn’t mean that a person can’t have an opinion about you. Everybody is not going to like you, and you can’t be upset with everybody for not liking you. If I’m that kind of position, I don’t have anything to say! Not with that kind of money!

Epps previously remarked about how he thinks every other comedian is funnier than Hart.

  1. Nick Cannon said it all. There’s enough money to go around. We need to stop fighting each other, and acting like crabs in a bucket. Epps’ behavior, is nothing short of gang mentality. Grow up, these are young men, you should be setting an example, not sowing division.

    All comedians have a different kind of funny that attracts different kinds of people. Not saying that any one of them is bad b/c they aren’t. Their comedy just appeals to different types of people. I like Kevin, Mike Epps, Earthquake, etc. But I don’t care for Corey Holcomb. He’s too raunchy, while others may think he’s hilarious. That’s not to say he isn’t funny. People should use their options. Don’t like the comedian or movie? Change the channel or change the venue.

  3. Why Askme on said:

    I think Mike Epps is just jealous. Why comment at all whether Kevin Hart is funny or not. Why comment whether ANY comedian is funny or not!! Unless you are feeling some type of way about your own success or lack there of!! Kevin’s sold out shows says HE IS FUNNY to certain people! I personally don’t think Mike Epps is funny! So look in the mirror Mike – you are just jealous because your explanation doesn’t even make sense
